under obamacare. likewise on the immigration context of a case-by-case prosecutorial discretion is one thing but if they get policy that will apply to 1.8 million people, that is quite something different. this is a scale of decision-making that isn't in the traditional conception of the prosecutorial discretion. >> the president has taken it a step further and has actually given legal documents to the people in that circumstance well beyond simply deciding not to leave them there and not prosecute them but actually enable the violation by giving them documents to help them avoid the problems from the country that they are not present. >> [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] the chair now recognizes the ranking member. >> [inaudible] with the witness to his left and i would like to ask if he could pick up that line of discussion. we are pleased that you are here because there has been so much excitement or excited rhetoric about where president an the prd his administration are going. i've never heard of this level of hypothesizing where this is all going to take us and i think it is co

their hands and to fix our broken immigration system. mr. speaker, last summer republicans and democrats in the senate came together and passed comprehensive immigration reform with a strong bipartisan vote, a vote of 68 to 32. 68-32. that's like a superduper majority. in fact, one poll last month showed that 63% of americans, 2/3 of americans, support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. business leaders, chambers of commerce, labor unions, faith groups, immigrant families, law enforcement officials, and americans of every race, creed, color, and ethnicity all across our country applauded our senators for reaching across the aisle. for many it really gave hope and belief in our government that we are still capable of putting aside political posturing and to build consensus around the difficult issues that face our country. but today as i speak americans are asking, what happened? they are confused as to why the house of representatives can't do the same thing that the senate did and pass immigration reform. they are even more confused as to why the house can't even dignify
the president's actions do not enforce deportation against a certain classes of immigrants. you know, instead of complaining about that, this committee could hold a markup and report of a comprehensive immigration reform bill, send it to the for -- >> mr. lazarus, you are -- not you but the question is too inept minutes over. so you can do this by giving us advice of what our legislative agenda should lock like an answer the question, i would be grateful to you. >> that is an answer. i think on this has a lot of power and it should use it. >> and i assume that the failure to exercise is also an exercise of power. the failure to act. mr. cannon, would you like to briefly -- >> maybe mr. lazarus knows better than i do how many bombs the president has dropped before that becomes more. i don't know the actual number. but i think what mr. king was getting at is, there is one last thing to which the people can resort to the government does not respect the restraints the constitution places on the cover. abraham lincoln talks about our right to alter our government or our revolution right to overthr

of our happiness but of the many families that can be torn apart by our broken immigration system. mr. doggett: we gave thought to those who were gathered at that very moment here on the national mall going without food, fasting for justice and they've been doing that now for weeks. thanksgiving is about the first immigrants in this land, in this land of opportunity, but today we find too many of our neighbors are denied opportunity because of their immigration status. they can't board a plane, they can't come out of the shadows. they don't know when they go to work in the morning if they'll find their family members there at night. this is not right and the time to fix that is right now. the only thing preventing a bipartisan response to the immigration problems we have in this country is the unwillingness of the speaker to permit a bipartisan vote on reform legislation. and to those who are not moved by their heart, they should be moved by their pocketbook, because the economic potential of permitting these individuals , 2/3 of which in mexican families in texas without documents ha
for the nearly 6,000 syrians with approved immigrant petitions to the united states. as hundreds of millions around the world prepare to celebrate the most joyful day of the christian calendar, the international community must intensify its efforts to end this terrible war and also to protect syria's christians and to ensure the continued vitality of this 2,000-year-old community. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. speaker, the innovativeness of american enterprise flies off the radar. according to amazon c.e.o., the company is fixing to deliver packages to its customers via drones. it's called amazon prime air. that's right. in just a few years, he says people will be able to order something online and have it in their hands within 30 minutes by the use of drones. sounds like something out of the "jetsons" doesn't it? soon there will be a drone to replace the mail carrier. according to amazon, these packages will deliver up to five pounds. mr. speaker, thousands of americans use amaz
want to see a gop president again, they must sign on to immigration reform. good news for amnesty advocate. speaker boehner hiring a high-profile adviser that is well known for helping senator john mccain passed amnesty and speaker boehner telling several business individuals that he will start holding immigration votes after the deadline for the 2014 midterm. so maybe we have a sense of what we can expect. you don't have to tell the chamber of commerce that the speaker is working to enact immigration reform. donohue issued everyone that speaker boehner would do exactly that. we will find out. we are back with monica, matt, and david. let's begin with you. we are calling for a recall. >> sooner or later you face your reality and you don't see upward mobility. whatever it is, if you see no future, you don't want to stay home forever home forever and be vacated as a bartender while your parents paid 80,000 foreign education. that is the reality that the me millennial space. and no matter what people want to call obama or his policies if you don't see upward mobility, you can't have
from food to raise awareness of the need for a bipartisan remedy for our broken immigration -- immigration system. support for the fasters is growing. like many in the united states -- in the u.s. they want to find a solution for immigrant families living in this great country that they call home. we can all agree it's time to modernize our immigration laws. fixing what is broken will not be an easy task but it will bring benefits to our nation which can be strengthened and reinvigorated by those hardworking individuals. i encourage my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reach across one another, begin a conversation and resolve this issue. we can work together to secure our bordered and honor the rule of law while addressing the problems in our immigration system with solutions that reflect our american principles. thank you, mr. speaker, and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from california seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and
immigrant groups in many of these countries. >> actually, with our common belief -- on income that is not actually right, in terms of child poverty the u.s. is around the average, among many countries, it has a more diverse population but even if you account for all of those factors, you know, to take vietnam a country that is very -- has poverty and still it comes out better than the average. so quality is a challenge, but you can actually see some countries very good at moderating inequality and very good at helping disadvantaged students actually to excel, you see it in asia and sipping pore and japan, you see it in northern europe where you have children coming out of poverty, and the education system then assures those children get the best educational opportunities. >> these numbers are inevitably pounced upon by advocates of all kinds, right? once we know the .. results of the tests, can we therefore say policy x is the right way to go? policy y for any particular country? and i am thinking specifically of the u.s. here. we have these -- we have all kinds of discussi
the other, that is the real sticking point here. you have immigration. adam: the business community wants some sort of immigration bill to get through congress. any chance we would see this happening or would this be continued delay, delay, delay? >> this would be after the congress in january because it is too big. in order for immigration to succeed it will not be an ominous bill like we had with obamacare. we need incremental bills on immigration talk about security pathway to citizenship, taxation and those type of things in order for immigration bill to go forward. which comes first, the chicken or the egg? a pathway to citizenship. these are the things that have to be ironed out in the open. it also has to be incremental. it cannot be the obamacare 3000 page bill nobody reads. lori: the one risk factor every stock strategist and economist point to are the physical fights, the budget fights we continue to do month after month as the main risk for the market. a promising jobs report for november following the month in october. the market is on a tear, the biggest risk factor for the m
new report, president obama stacking his immigration enforcement office with proopen borders amnesty attorneys. are illegal immigrants getting a free pass thanks to the government? >> he was born a muslim. he read the bible and it changed his life forever. it cost him, his family and his freedom but he said it is worth it. that man's journey to christianity is coming up. ick with innovation. stick with power. stick with technology. get the new flexcare platinum from philips sonicare and save now. philips sonicare. what does that first spoonful taste likok. honey bunches of oats. ching! mmmm! mmmm! mmmm! wow! it's the oats. honey. yeah. honey bunches of oats. this is a great cereal. >>> let's hear, the deck is being stacked at the department of homeland security. a shocking media report, details the recent mass hiring of immigration lawyers. nearly all pro-amnesty. so even if the obama administration can't officially change immigration policy, these lawyers can help illegal immigrants stay in the country regardless of the law. joining us now is the author of that report, former d. o.j
and when he signed it into law and throughat up immigration and stuff like that. give the american people a voice. the house judiciary committee held a hearing recovered -- we about the president and executive power, republicans siding that he change the health power andy executive that he has done the same on other issues. that,'re interested in you can go to our website c- span.org and you can see it there. we covered that hearing yesterday. that policyying differences don't constitute a constitutional crisis. that was their opinion of yesterday's hearing. in ohio.to ed republican. caller: good morning. of course people should be fired. from the head of the fish to the bottom. there is a pattern in this whole administration. it is nonstop. denial, denial, deny -- they are --yal to ridiculously that would be the last person he would fire. people keep forgetting all of these little things they slipped in. he is very bright. he came in as a community organizer, he will go out as one. he just changed the role again. we will postpone it until after the midterms. corporations do not have to f
undocumented immigrants than any president previous president in the history of the united states. so there are some things that the president has done to really annoy the latino voter. now, i have to add and caution people who might say this ii a great chance now for the republicans. the way the republicans can torpedo this chance among hispanic social security to keep a point of view when it comes to immigration reform. i think if republicans are smart now, they will seize this obvious decline in popularity, this reflex approval of the president among latinos and say, as bill o'reilly has said, as sean hannity has said, let's be more open minded and more modern and let's be more reform oriented when it comes to immigration. we can get this vital voting block on our corner. >> who is doing that right now? >> who on the republican side? >> who in your mind? >> there are some voices. mostly comment tears. i have to say, rather than elected officials. you hear people like cantor, for instance, these are guys -- paul ryan, these are guys that could very easily influence the gop away from
't like he rewrites the lay. it's not just in healthcare issue, it's in regard to immigration, epa regulations. martha: the extension of the employer mandate and moving the money that was suppose to be use forward prevention over to the creation of exchanges. and the critics believe that neither one of those things was in the law. when you look at article two, section three, it says the president shall take care the laws be faithfully executed. that's his job to carry out the law passed by congress. i'm sure that the president who was a constitutional professor himself would say he is well within the law and others might point to previous executive orders and say presidents do this all the time. >> i think our constitutional law professor president needs a refresher kearse on the separation of powers in our united states constitution. clearly it is the congress that's dell gate that authority. the phrase you just referred to to faithfully execute the laws. presidents do have authority to exercise discretion. but when you rewrite a law to say we are going to take it vast majority of
in obamacare without congressional approval, failed to enforce our immigration and drug laws and ignored his constitutional duties for the sake of politics. >> our first guest says obamacare will eviscerate a robust and helpful system prevails want to make sure that congress does not rest until it has defunded, delayed, repealed, and replaced this monstrosity. joining us, the authors of the recently released e-book not what the doctors ordered. this sickening impact of obamacare. joining us now, congressman paul brown to serve as a medical officer in the u.s. navy and has practiced general medicine for most of his career and is, of course, now i congressman. president and citizens united foundation. good to have you both here. the president, congressman, makes it clear. he understands there have been a few little problems to nobody is not going to put up with anybody repealing abortion aside. your reaction? >> the problem is obamacare in itself. all of the things that you just mentioned and are just a reflection, just symptoms of a law that is totally flawed. we must repeal it, replace it. a
, et cetera, that makes you wonder how much room is left for the presidents to tout immigration reform or the second term agenda. jenna: it'll be interesting to see what the president has to say in a few hours we had thank you. jon: although the white house says the major buzz in the healthcare.gov website are now fixed, more than 1 million users able to visit the site yesterday. there are still some problems with it. enrollment errors for a third of people signed up for health plans since october 1. joining us now, writer at the washington deacon. the white house says healthcare.gov is working now. is that actual? >> we do not have enough information to make that determination. they put out this progress report this weekend and if you look at it, all it dealt with was how quickly people able to enroll. they didn't address things people have called back end issues like the 834 transmission, information you are passing along to insurance. i would say the report is there is not enough evidence or data to determine if it is fixed. if you are not going to put out a progress report, you can
immigration reform. that is the course that is most effective. host: do you agree with the president? is the course that is most appropriate. >> do you agree with the president when he says that the only way to get it done is by step-by-step? the day, ind of think it is important for a bill to be brought to the floor of the house of representatives and frost to find something that can be passed at conference committee. for talking with us. the houses in early for session. virginia foxx to act as speaker pro tempore on this day. signed, john a. boehner, speaker of the house of representatives. the speaker pro tempore: the prayer will be offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. eternal god, we give you thanks for giving us another day. we pause in your presence and ask guidance for the men and women of the people's house. enable them, o god, to act on what they believe to be right and true and just, and to do so in ways that show respect for those with whom they disagree. send your spirit of peace upon our nation. endow the members of thi
$18 billion in debt. now to boston, immigration judge ruling that president obama's kenyon born uncle can stay in the u.s. the 69-year-old uncle is the half-brother of president obama's father. he has lived in the united states since the 1960's. and now to north korea. uncle of kim jong un has been stripped of his powers. the uncle has been considered number two of the north korean government. he has been a mentor to his nephew and the nation's power elite since the days of kim jong il. and that's tonight's speed read is president obama writing his own healthcare law. is he violating the constitution? that is what the house judiciary committee is trying to figure out. >> indeed, president obama is is the first president since richard nixon to ignore a duly enacted law simply because he disagrees with it it the dream act and no child left behind education law, welfare reform law, drug laws, healthcare law. we have seen a pattern. president obama sir couple events congress when he doesn't get his way. >> the administration's decision to defer action against particular individuals is nei
to need immigration reform that grows the economy and takes people out of the shadows. we're going to need targeted initiatives to close those gaps. [applause] but here's an important point. the decades-long shifts in the economy have hurt all groups -- poor and middle class, inner city and rural folks, men and women, and americans of all races. and as a consequence, some of the social patterns that contribute to declining mobility that were once attributed to the urban poor -- that's a particular problem for the inner city -- single-parent households or drug abuse -- it turns out now we're seeing that pop up everywhere. a new study shows that disparities in education, mental health, obesity, absent fathers, isolation from church, isolation from community groups -- these gaps are now as much about growing up rich or poor as they are about anything else. the gap in test scores between poor kids and wealthy kids is now nearly twice what it is between white kids and black kids. kids with working-class parents are 10 times likelier than kids with middle- or upper-class parents to go through a
a lot of money because my client thinks this is cool. [laughter] omlt's of immigran immigrant con believes nothing further is a good thing. frankly, almost every american delays not being the federal government. i've had very few people rush in and say i feel so bad. could i give them more? [laughter] so the second phase would be to i shall bring people who do it well. the third phase would be in a very calm way to bring in the people currently in charge and just say, explain the system. this is a system -- this is what i learned from taking a tutorial from the father of the call the movie. this is not about bad people. these are decent people in a terrible system. and so you have to say tell me what the system is. and then you ought to bring in experts who can say, all right, here is a system that works and here's a system that fails. if you want to get to the system that works it means you have to have these changes. i think what would be very helpful for the country at the last stage of these countries would be members talking among themselves in public and saying given what we
country that was years ago. if you look at the number of immigrants with enter the country. a million or so every single year. they tend to make a little bit less than the native population. secondly, increase the amount of women who are the main breadwinner's for their households. one thing worth noting here is women still make less on average than men. dennis: it brings numbers down making the gap look worse than it otherwise would be. dennis: custody question, why is it worth the widening gap among 35-44-year-olds. >> is one thing about this population. these are the folks who are just about to enter their prime earning years. i am in this group. 40s-50s earning the biggest paychecks you possibly ever will. dennis: this is when the richer guys start to take off and accelerates the gap. >> we look at what happened during the recession a lot of folks had to lose their job, took lower paying jobs. look at the medium wage in this country stagnant for the past couple of years. you cannot talk about income inequality without talk about the minimum wage. i will mention i do have a brother
,000 in the united states. immigration officials are reviewing the plan. now it's time for another episode of steve talks to the judge. >> thank you very much, brian. you have the right to remain silent is taking on a whole new meaning in the state of texas. a controversial new policy requires dallas police officers involved in shootings to wait 72 hours before giving a statement. what will that lead to? could it lead to a coverup? let's talk to fox news judicial senior analyst judge andrew napolitano. explain the back story. why is dallas doing this? >> the back story is a dallas police officer in the course of his duties shot and killed someone and in the person of filling out the report said the person he shot and killed lunged at him with a knife. then it turns out there were videotapes and there was no lunging and no knife. now the cop is being investigated for excessive use of force. could be a murder charge, could be nothing. what happens? the police unions in dallas pressured the chief to say we shouldn't have to give our version of the killings until we talk to everyone else involved, unti
once ambitious second term agenda including immigration reform and addressing the nation's infrastructure needs. republicans are already building their 2014 congressional election campaign around obamacare. if they're able to win the senate and hold on to the house, obama will be a very lame duck for his last two years in office. let's bring in juan williams, our fox news political analyst. the first question for you juan, what do you think about his op-ed there? >> i think that is on target, jon. i mean look, right now as doyle points out, republicans have focused on obamacare. they have 80 plus percent of republicans unified behind opposition to obamacare. as you know, there are a lots of disputes within the party on lots of social issues, budget, all that, but not when it comes to obamacare. so now, they're trying to expand that to independents. again, when you look at the poll numbers, independents not sold. very much in fact dissuade by the president's performance in the rollout of the websites. so he lost among independents. he is losing some among democrats. and th
immigrants seeking to go to china as a haven from whatever problems they may face at home. i think the key to america's future is not what china does. it is what america does. ande develop our economy govern ourselves effectively, i think our soft power, economic power, and military power will be very adequate to our needs. china is making progress. we should hope china makes progress. after all, it is 20% of the world's people. we ought to wish them the best. on the other hand, we ought to be mindful of our own security and other interests. host: we have one viewer that puts it this way. the same people that fear competition fear china. guest: i do not know how you can be a capitalist and fear competition. we think that is a driving engine. if the chinese become more innovative, we've got to educate our kids and grandkids to innovate even faster. values out-of-the-box thinking, entrepreneurship, venture capital. i think we are constructed as a society to be very competitive in the 21st century. china has lots of problems that limit its capacity to be as competitive as we can be. the tradi
